What becomes of your CDL after a drunk driving arrest?

As a commercial driver in New Jersey, you must demonstrate a higher duty of care to other drivers on the road than drivers of non-commercial vehicles. Because of this, if an officer arrests you for driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, you may be subject to heftier fines and stricter penalties. This is for good reason, as your cargo may involve dangerous materials, small children or adult passengers. Additionally, if you get behind the wheel while drugged or drunk, you not only pose a serious threat to yourself and the general public, but you also become a serious liability to your employer.

What should I do to facilitate my recovery from whiplash?

When you are involved in a car accident in New Jersey, one of the injuries you may have experienced is whiplash. The pain you feel is the result of the violent back-and-forth movement that your head and neck made when your car was impacted. During the time you spent with first responders, you may not have felt the pain immediately. Sometimes, if you are in shock or merely trying to process the situation, you may not be aware of your injuries right away.
